Cadmium exposure

A review of research on possible links between occupational exposure to cadmium and genito-urinary cancers found only weak evidence of associations with bladder, renal and prostrate cancer. Some studies were poorly carried out and did not control for the effects of smoking. The Industrial Injuries Advisory Council does not recommend that genito-urinary cancers be prescribed for cadmium-exposed workers.
